Visiting my parents this weekend I thought I might make use of their print edition of the Observer. After all, every weekend I follow links from @realdmitchell and @victoriacoren to their articles in there - I quite like the Observer, I read its content, it was just sitting on the sofa next to me, why not give it a whirl?
I discovered almost immediately why not. The UX is unuseable nonsense. Look at the thing! A big pile of pieces of paper stapled together into sections apparently selected by theme. I've no idea which of these sections David Mitchell or Victoria Coren's articles are in - I doubt they're considered "Food Monthly", and they're probably not "Sport" unless poker is a sport, or David Mitchell is having one of his occasional anti-football polemics. But there's no viable search function apart from a big ad on the front page of the news section for the one magazine that I'm pretty sure they're not in.
People are apparently surprised that ebooks have already overtaken paper. Those people should have a go at using paper again. Paper doesn't work.
